About a month ago, I injured my knee. Then it healed wrong, and had to be adjusted all to hell last week. It had started feeling better and I swear it was healing.

Then sometime last week, I re-injured it. I’m not sure what I did. My physical therapist couldn’t reconstruct what I did. Let’s just say that I messed up my knee but good.


So I’ve kind of gone back to square one, though I’m probably less than that, back at step zero. Fortunately, I have a good physical therapist and a good coach and I’ll get back on track as soon as I can.

I recently bought a productivity planner. I know, some of you are rolling your eyes at me. I’m already pretty productive. However, I am working on viewing the glass as half full and NOT half empty.

I do a lot. I need to give myself credit for doing a lot.

So I’m using this planner a bit differently than it was initially intended. I’m going to use it to keep track of everything I do, so that at the end of a week, it’s all there in black and white for me to see. What I tend to do is to keep To Do lists on my phone, and then delete items as I finish them.

As I have no record, I never feel good about what I do, in part, because I can’t remember everything I did over the course of a week.

Don’t know if this will work or if it will just annoy me. But I’m going to try it for a few weeks, change and adopt as necessary, to see if it helps.

Didn’t write much yesterday. Instead, fixed the story that I’d written for Boundary Shock, the Ray Guns and Space Babes issue. “The Case of the Missing Mogul” – An Alvin Goodfellow Mystery. Basically, a 1930s detective on the moon. So it has that Chandler voice and no real science. Yeah, I’m going to turn him into a series character and write other SF mysteries with him.

My goal for November was 50K. I’m currently sitting at 61K. Will get some more words this morning. Feeling good.

Well, except for the knee… (^_^)

Hope that you’re looking forward to your weekend as much as I am!
